Let me know when you're ready to watch Cloud Atlas.
Oh, my. This movie made me clutch my diamonds and my pearls. I'm already looking forward to the Questlove documentary where he unearths the lost footage that proves this was at least just as good as Under The Cherry Moon. One star for the Tevin Campbell banger and another for the slept on banger Thieves In The Temple. And I almost took half a star off because there is absolutely not enough Prince humping the floor up in this piece. What's a brother got to do to get one ass-less chap up in this joint!
This would've been a 5 star joint if it ended with Tár conducting the orchestra on Diddy's "Come With Me" from the Godzilla soundtrack. Those violins slap.
I think Bowfinger does a better job showing how Latinos have advanced in Hollywood. There's a scene where Manny asks a Black man to do blackface and it's handled with the disconnect of a white guy who's directed a movie about jazz starring mostly white people. Twice. The characters of color never discuss the racism towards them with each other or other people of color, we just see them react to it. We rarely see Manny hang around other Latinos…
Might be one of the worse Halloween sequels. Worse than the original Halloween sequels. The original Halloween 2 is a banger. This is Friday The 13th Part V bad. It's Another 48 Hrs bad. Lethal Weapon 4 bad. It's that Die Hard where John McClane goes to Russia or Russia came here, idk he drives a tank and you're like, what the fuck?, bad. I asked myself what the fuck several times during this movie. It's such a bad sequel…
